a king of the Lapithae, a son of Ares and Chryse, the daughter of Halmus, succeeded Eteocles, who died without issue, in the government of the district of Orchomenos, which he called after himself Phlegyantis. (Apollodorus iii)
Enraged at this, Phlegyas set fire to the temple of the God,
who killed him with his arrows, and condemned him to severe
punishment in the lower world. (Apollodorus iii) According to another
tradition Phlegyas had no children, and was killed by Lycus and Nycteus.
Strabo calls him a brother of Ixion.
